That's an option? Well if I knew that...

Hmm, that's what I asked for in my latest email. It's worth pestering just for the chance of reducing needless workload?! If they could just check in with people they might find it's reduced significantly.

I've sent off a message requesting a kit, we'll see what they say.

Kipper2k, it would definitely be a good idea to offer future keyboards as a kit option. I'm especially interested in your C64MX design, but not super impressed with AOTL as a distributor. Between this (and another irritating interaction with them on another order) I would be unlikely to pre-order anything from them again, and I'd be thinking twice about ordering an instock item. Which is a shame, as they seem to be the sole distributor for a number of your other excellent designs.

And a quick "no" from AOTL. Keyboard probably shipping soon, apparently. Guess I'll wait a bit longer then.

Yep. A "no" about keyboard kits on my end as well. This makes zero sense.

So how the hell did BatGirl65 get an unassembled kit then? I'd rather put it together myself. That's half the fun right there!

Maybe BatGirl65 is mistaken or just having a laugh.

No laugh, totally incorrect and counted my chickens before they hatched. Sorry for the delay in posting. I work for Apple and this is a very busy time of the year. My package arrived sans the Keyboard with an apology for the length of time it’s taking to get the keyboards out. Sorry to throw gasoline on the fire. I guess I just look on the bright side even when the lights gone out.

That's cool, appreciate the update!

So this is getting increasingly strange. With such a connected community, what are the odds of absolutely nobody with knowledge of a recipient at this stage, or even hearsay? Pretty low, I feel. I'm also kinda surprised AOTL haven't blogged a quick update with a pile of boxes and "bear with us!" to alleviate. I'll still give them the benefit of doubt but it's wearing.
